The Tripartite Committee has again failed to reach a consensus over the new minimum wage of workers in the country.
Chairman of the Committee and former Head of Service of the Federation, Ms Ama Pepple, disclosed this to reporters on Monday in Abuja.
Ms Pepple made the disclosure following a meeting of the committee which lasted for more than nine hours with representatives of the Federal Government and leaders of the organised labour in attendance.
According to her, the committee will have to submit both the N30,000 minimum wage demanded by the organised labour and the N24,000 proposed by the government to President Muhammadu Buhari for onward submission to the National Assembly.
Meanwhile, the government is optimistic that the labour will not proceed on the planned industrial action scheduled to commence on Tuesday.
But the leaders of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and Trade Union Congress (TUC) have yet to take a decision whether or not the strike would go as planned.
